Born to Knit Workshops
‘Born to Knit’ runs day-time and evening knitting and crochet workshops offering tuition in everything from casting-on and cable patterns to colour work.
Whether you're a complete beginner or wanting to learn new techniques, Born to Knit can help!
Wednesday 11th July 7 - 9.30pm
An introduction to a different technique where small pieces are knitted together as the work progresses – a bit like building up a patchwork quilt only with knitting. This workshop is suitable for novice knitters who can already cast on and off, knit and purl.
Learn to Crochet
Wednesday 18th July 2018
If you have always wanted to have a go at Crochet but don't know where to start, then this introductory evening will dispel the mystery. Learn the basic techniques on a practice piece, then move onto your first project - a crocheted phone, tablet case or cushion cover, which need no shaping or adjusting to fit! This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners.
An Introduction to Lace Knitting
Wednesday 26th July 2018
Have you aspired to having a go at lace knitting but been daunted by the thought of working with fine yarn and interpreting a chart? If so, this workshop is for you! Learn the basic principles of lace knitting on a practice sample before beginning a lace scarf in 4ply yarn. This workshop is suitable for knitters who are confident with the basics of casting on and off, and working knit and purl stitches who would like a new challenge and to take their knitting to the next level.
One -to-One Tuition
If you are unable to come to a workshop on a particular date, Heather does offer one-to-one tuition which she can tailor to whatever you are interested in learning.
Knit and Knatter Group
The B2K K&K is an opportunity for knitters of all ages and levels of experience to get together informally over a cup of tea/coffee for a Knit and a Knatter. These are purely social gatherings so no tuition is provided. For those wanting to learn to knit, or a little refresher on certain techniques, please have a look at our workshops page. Or why not book some friendly one-to-one tuition with Heather for as little as £7.50 per 15 mins at the Born to Knit studio at Fisherton Mill.
Heather runs two ‘Knit & Knatter’ groups, both in Salisbury. For information about dates, times and arrangements, please see the Born to Knit website.
